Every child receiving early intervention services under Part C of IDEA must have an IFSP—an individualized family service plan.
This module takes a detailed look at the content that must be included in each child’s IFSP, according to the Part C regulations. Module 6 includes:
- 1 slideshow presentation;
- a trainer’s guide explaining all the content;
- a Speaker’s Notes version of the slideshow; and
- 2 handouts and 1 optional activity sheet for participants.
Please help yourself! Download the components you need to learn on your own and/or to train others on the content of the IFSP.
Files You’ll Need to Download
Trainer’s Guide | The trainer’s guide to Module 6 takes a close look at each element that’s included in the IFSP of a baby or toddler receiving early intervention services under Part C of IDEA. Moving slide by slide, the trainer’s guide provides images of each slide, instructions for how to operate the slide (e.g., when to click to reveal more of the slide or to advance to the next slide), and an explanation of the content on the slide. The trainer’s guide is available in two formats, for your convenience:
PDF | Trainer’s Guide for Module 6 (62 pages)
Word | Trainer’s Guide for Module 6 (for accessibility)
Slideshow | The slideshow for Module 6 has 21 slides in total. The file is provided as a PowerPoint Show. Download the file to your computer. As a SHOW, the slideshow will automatically launch when you open the file. It will then operate as described in the Trainer’s Guide.
Speaker Notes | We know from experience that many trainers find it helpful to have a Speaker Notes version of the slideshow. The Speaker Notes version shows each slide picture and provides blank lines below (for taking notes). Use the Speaker Notes version for your own planning (it’s in Word, so you can add your own notes where the blank lines are) or share it with participants for their own taking of notes.
